Who doesn’t love chocolate chip muffins for breakfast? 

Greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins are the ultimate breakfast muffin that everyone in your family will love.

While I’m a big fan of healthy blueberry muffins, these chocolate chip ones are perfect for when I have that sweet tooth. 

These simple and wholesome muffins are made with lighter ingredients, naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup, and pack a hidden protein punch thanks to greek yogurt. 

Each muffin is only around 300 calories and has 9 grams of protein! 

They are super fast to make and area ready from start to finish in less than a half hour.

how to make chocolate chip muffins with greek yogurt

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients:

  • whole wheat pastry flour
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt

If you do not have whole wheat pastry flour, you can use all purpose flour in the same amount. 

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients:

  • greek yogurt
  • pure maple syrup
  • eggs
  • vanilla extract
  • melted coconut oil. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet, then use a rubber spatula to mix until just combined.

It’s key here that you do not over mix the batter.

Over mixing makes muffins denser, and we want that light and fluffy texture that everyone loves.

Once combined, add in the mini chocolate chips. 

I love using mini chocolate chips instead of regular when I am making these muffins.

Mini chocolate chips means there is chocolate in every bite!

Now that you have added the mini chocolate chips, your batter will look like this.

Line a muffin tin with parchment paper muffin liners. 

I use these every time I make muffins, as they won’t stick to the wrapper at all!

Parchment paper muffin liners will change you forever. 

Never lose part of a muffin to the wrapper again!

Bake your greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Tips for light and fluffy texture

Be sure not to over mix the batter, as this will result in too dense muffins. The key is to mix until just combined, the same goes when you add in the chocolate chips.

How do I measure the coconut oil?

Measure the coconut oil while solid, then melt in the microwave for 15 - 45 seconds until it turns to liquid.

Can I freeze these muffins?

This is one of the yummiest muffin recipes I've ever had. I was looking for a healthy muffin recipe without banana since I ran out of bananas my second week after grocery shopping. I reduced the maple syrup to 1/3 of a cup since my yogurt had sugar in it. I also swapped our the mini chocolate chips for dark chocolate, Very good! Highly recommend!
